All parameters refer to photodiode operation at ambient temperature 25°C
*1 Parameter tested for representative sampling.
*2 Parameter tested for each device.
*3 Measured at Vreverse = 1 V for Lms24PD, Lms25PD models and at Vreverse = 0.1 V bias for other models.
*4 Measured at Vreverse = 10 mV.
*5 Temperature range may vary for different packaging types.
